Art du Jour! Vigée LeBrun, 1789
Vigée LeBrun, Elisabeth-Louise. Madame d'Aguesseau de Fresnes, 1789. Oil on wood. The National Gallery of Art.
From the collection of the National Gallery of Art, this portrait is of Madame d'Aguesseau de Fresnes adorned in a very exotic dress which recalls the styles of the Turkish and Greek. I particularly enjoy her buckle and earrings.
